4 Strategies To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To When you need a lawyer for any reason, you have to work closely with them as a way to win your case. Regardless of how competent they may be, they're likely to need your help. Allow me to share four important ways to help your legal team assist you to win: 1. Be Totally Honest Or Higher Your lawyers need and expect your complete cooperation - irrespective of what information you're going to reveal to them. Privilege means anything you say is stored in confidence, so don't hold anything back. Your legal team should know everything in advance - most importantly information another side could find out about and surprise you with later. 2. Provide Meticulous Records Keep a regular and factual account of all the information associated with your case. Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys because of the data they should assist them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Those Engagements Not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are on time, whenever. In reality, because you may need to discuss last second details or even be extra prepared for the truth you're facing, it's a good idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate That You Have Your Act Together If you've been charged with any type of crime, it's important to be able to prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and therefore are making strides toward improving your life. For example, if you're facing driving under the influence, volunteer for the rehab program. Be sincere and linked to the community the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with your legal team increases your probability of absolute success. Follow these tips, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you must win your case.

What Is The Best Field Of Law?
I Am Thinking Of Law School And Was Wondering If Anyone Had Opinions On Which Was The Best Field Of Law...
For Fun Daily Work?
For Time With Family?
For Most Overall Fullfillment?
My husband is an attorney and he has friends in all areas of law. Most are unhappy with their career choice. The ones who are happy are almost all in criminal law (ie. District Attorney or Public Defender.) Public employees tend to have a decent salary, great benefits, and unless you are in trial, reasonable hours. The L.A. Public Defender starts at about $60k and after 15 years, you'll make about $110k. Not the "gobs of money" you think about, but a decent living.
The public sector criminal attorneys are the people who went to law school knowing what they wanted to do and did it. This is the best reason to go to law school.
Too many people go to law school not out of a burning passion for law but because it was a professional program and they thought they'd make good money.
Unless you are in the public sector and fighting for a cause, law is a business like any other. At the "big firms" Senior Partners can make seven figures -- but that's after 20 years of 80 hour work weeks.
The most lucrative field is Patent Law but you've got to have quite a bit of undergraduate science and pass a special Patent Law exam on top of the bar exam to practice in Patent Courts.
Intellectual Property pays more on average than other forms of civil law.
Having your own practice can help you balance work/life issues and can also be quite lucrative. But some people who do this barely squeak out a living. Again, it boils down to your business skills.
If you really want to be a lawyer -- go! Don't let anyone hold you back. But, if you're just searching for a profession, think twice about law. Almost every private sector lawyer I know (including my husband) wishes they had picked another path.

Where Can I Get Low Cost Legal Aid For Child Custody Cases?
I'M In California And I Want To Change The Custody Order. We Currently Have A 50/50 With My Ex, And He Won'T Allow Me To Move 45 Minutes Away To Another County With My Child.
It States In The Custody Order That I Can Move, As Long As He Is Notified, But He Is Giving Me A Hard Time About It.
The Child Is Also Fearful To Be Near Him, And Has Expressed That His Father Has Locked Him In The Dark. This Is Unacceptable Punishment To Me, And I'D Like An Agreement That Is 75/25, With The Father Taking Parenting Classes.
Google free legal advice to find someone in your area. At least they can help you find a starting place to getting low cost help.
I went through something similar in Australia, and received free legal aid provided by the government to low income earners.
Good luck with your case. Family Law = ongoing trauma!
New York State Divorce Laws?
My Wife Has Filed Papers For Divorce I Really Can'T Afford An Attorney. I Lost My Job. What Are My Options
If she is filing a no fault divorce (a divorce that usually means irreconcilable differences) NY state requires you to be legally separated for 1 year BEFORE you can even file for divorce. Once the year is up you can file.
If its an uncontested divorce, meaning you two agree on the terms of the divorce, a lawyer is not required. If you two cannot agree on the terms, then its considered contested and will require a lawyer.
Do You Think Dogs Deserves Legal Rights?
A legal right is an abstract concept. Animals can not even think abstractly.
Example if a dog comes on your property(trespassing)and eats your cat food(theft) how many years do you lock it up. Or it kills your cat do you execute it ? After trial of course.
With rights come responsibilities. What morons advocating animal rights mean is they want the right to tell you what you can and can not do with your animals. They want power over your property. In the name of compassion for animals of course.
It is a power grab plain and simple.
Help! I Need Legal Advice Regarding Paternity And Divorce!?
I Gave Birth To A Baby On March 15, 2007. I Was Legally Married To My Soon To Be Ex, But He Is Not The Father Of The Baby. In The Hospital, I Was Told That In The State Of Michigan, The Husband Has To Be On The Birth Certificate, Even If He Isn'T The Biological Father. I Want To Have My Husband Removed From The Birth Certificate, And Have No Obligations In Regards To Child Support, And Then Proceed With The Divorce Proceedings. I Don'T Know Where To Start And I'Ve Contacted Various Agencies To Find Out And I Keep Getting The Runaround. Do I Establish Paternity First? Or File For Divorce First? If The Baby'S Biological Father Won'T Submit To A Paternity Test, What Are My Options?? It'S A Big Mess, I Know. But My Husband And I Weren'T Together When I Conceived With My Ex-Boyfriend. Now, The Ex-Bf Is Saying He Won'T Have To Pay Child Support Because He'S Not On The Birth Certificate And He Isn'T Responsible For Anything To Do With Our Son! I Don'T Have Alot Of Money For An Attorney!
There are simular states where the husband would legally be considered the father. I know this happened to me, when I filed for divorce he tried for full custody and I told my attorney he was not the father but it did not matter. Ultimatly my ex signed over his parental rights and my new husband (13 years) adopted my son.
What you need to do is file for divorce, go file for child support and name your ex boyfriend on the papers in family court. He willl have to do one of two things. Either he will submit to paternity to prove he is or isnt' the father. Or if he does not show up, the judge will order a default order.
The hospital I believe was wrong legally you could name anyone to be on the birth certificate Hell you could have name Brad Pitt.
Being on the birth certificate does NOT make you the father, it's just a piece of paper it's what we like to call putive father.
You need to contact the vital satisics office there in your state tell them you were forced to place someone else on the BC and you want to new one issued.
This should help and will get the ball rolling! Good luck
